Last weekend was a great one in the snake department. My son and I were out biking and he was way out ahead of me. He found a Northern Pacific Rattlesnake while we were out biking and his wonderful father had to huff it to the spot as fast as possible. It was just off the road by the time I got there but wasn’t in a terrible hurry. We were able to grab some photos and video. Later that same night I found a Great Basin Gopher Snake roadside. The next day we were out riding in another place and my son again found the thickest Gopher Snake I’ve ever seen. Three great snakes in one weekend and we weren’t looking for them. Northern Pacific Rattlesnakes are at the extreme north of their range here in Kamloops.
